I survived the 2 days before Thanksgiving break! I had to cover another class on Monday, but we all survived. There was LOTS of bribery and candy involved, but we survived and I’m okay with it!

Thanksgiving was low key for us. We didn’t go anywhere (seriously-I work in a germ factory with positive COVID cases; I would feel horrible if I got someone sick). Dave and I made a turkey breast, stuffing, green beans, and a pumpkin pie (all gluten free). I was pretty proud of myself for cooking all that! The turkey breast turned out great too!

The rest of holiday break was low key as well-no crazy shopping or anything. I paid bills, did some instagram pics to get a head, and cleaned. My friend’s birthday was Saturday and mine is Wednesday, so we got on Zoom Friday night and celebrated safely with our other friends. It was so great to see everyone and chat while also staying in my PJs and not needing an Uber! Social Distance birthday for the win!

Now we start the march towards Christmas! 3 weeks of school then Christmas break! I know the week before Christmas will be pandemonium, so I’m preparing now-printing coloring sheets, downloading fun videos, setting up fun Christmas games, etc. It’s all about survival.

So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Oh yes… I recall the runup to Christmas well… Christmas puzzles, wordsearches, games. Yep – the survival kit, alright. I hope the coming week is as peaceful as possible. Take care and happy reading:))

  2. That sounds like a great holiday! I am glad you survived the two days before. We did low-key also, just the family, didn’t want to get germs or give germs to anyone. It was a nice day.

    I hope you have a great week, Samantha! Happy Reading! xx

  3. We did turkey breasts too- no huge turkey for us this year! It worked out fine. A quieter holiday this year but nice. Hope yours was great as well. 🙂

  4. I really enjoyed “The Twilight Before Christmas” so I hope you enjoy that from Feehan. I am happy you were able to get your feast gluten free….that is a great accomplishment!! Its going to be crazy going into Christmas, but expected. Happy to see your Thanksgiving was a great one as well despite it being smaller. Zoom is great right? I love being able to talk to my friends and extended family since I haven’t seen them most of the year. It helps a bit even if I crave human connection so much.

  5. It sounds like a great holiday to me. I always made turkey breast because everyone only liked white meat. But I didn’t even do turkey this year since my daughter doesn’t love it. I’m glad you had some time to take care of a few things including yourself My daughter only has a couple weeks before her classes are out and then about 3 weeks off. I like these socially distanced events, doc appts, and so forth. And I actually like staying home for the most part. Have a good week! Stay safe and well.

  6. LOL yes, the days/week before a holiday are always a struggle. Bribery is absolutely acceptable! Good luck with these 3 weeks until Christmas. What do you teach again? I can’t remember, for some reason I thought middle school – but coloring sheets don’t align with my vision of middle school lol!

    Happy early birthday and social distancing for the win! I wish everyone would take it more seriously – like you said, you’re in a germ factory. It sucks that means you need to be isolated and another reason why I feel teachers need to be given a lot more EVERYTHING. But honestly, we should all be fairly isolated – we kept it simple this year too, only spending time with those we knew were as careful as we are.

    Have a great week!

  7. We had similar Thanksgivings! We too did a Turkey breast and some of the sides. I’ve never been a big Black Friday shopper so this year was no different for me.

    Keeping the kids attention this year has to be so much harder! It sounds like you have a pretty good idea what you are in for. Best of luck!

    Hope you have a fantastic week!

  8. You made it through the two days before Thanksgiving! That’s all anyone could hope for with so many people being out at your school and the cover situation. I hope you managed to rest up enough to make it through this week. I get just aiming to make it through until Christmas, you can start fresh with teaching next year, no one is fully there for learning in the run up to Christmas.
